Sunday Stash Report, Week 16

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted a blog post.  That's the longest I've gone since I started blogging 3 or 4 years ago.  One thing I've discovered, blogging gives me motivation to sew, then I have something to write about, even if no one reads my posts.

Only one small purchase in all this time, 1 metre representing two cloth books that I'll make for Christmas presents.



Added this Week: 1 metres

 Added Year to Date: 63.1 metres
 

Destashed this Week: 0 metres

 Destashed year to Date: 22.55 metres
 Added for 2014: 40.55 metres

Total spent  YTD $284.20 = $4.76/metre

It's been a busy month - our guild was featured at the Creative Stitches show this year, I was only able to volunteer one day because of work, but it was a long day!


Then we had a special sew-in with a very special visitor!  Ron Swanson dropped by, along with his maker, Monica Solorio-Snow aka the Happy Zombie!


This quilt made the rounds a while back, and even visited the set of Parks & Recreation - you just have to read Monica's description of that for a hilarious belly laugh!

Monica is a great lady, and a lot of fun!  I was lucky enough to sit across from her during the sew-in and get to know her better.  I was even inspired to pull out a test block that I did based on one of her designs (Funky Wrench - a free tutorial here) and start a new project.


I got eight of these 6" (finished) blocks done - all are made with 5" charm squares with grey backgrounds (Bella grey and feather).  I want to pick up some charcoal and finish a few more for a cute baby quilt.

I've also been busy in the garden.  We've had a later spring then usual, so I'm late getting my early plants in, but last weekend was so beautiful I was able to some done.  Daisy enjoyed the sun as well!


And yesterday, we went to one of the local farms for an Easter egg hunt and see the baby animals.  


Zoey - 34 months old


Alex - 5 1/2 years

We had dinner last night, so it's a quiet day today for me.  Taxes, some scrapbooking and maybe some sewing tonight!

Happy Easter to all - hope your day is wonderful, whether you spend it with your church, family or by yourself.
